    Lev (Leo) Tolstoy, statuette in Silumin alloy, circa 1970s- 80s.

    Lev (Leo) Tolstoy, statuette in Silumin alloy, circa 1970s- 80s.

    Stands 11 3/4" tall; the plinth is 4 " x 3 ". Much more interesting than a bust, this statuette depicts the great author in his late years. Dressed in his trademark garb of a common peasant, he is obviously taking one of his daily walks in his Yasnaya Polyana estate. The elderly writer still appears to be full of energy and vigor as he boldly marches forward barely assisted by the walking stick.

    The author of timeless classics - War and Peace, Resurrection and Anna Karenina to name a few - Tolstoy was considered a peerless novelist even by some of his great contemporaries such as Dostoevsky and Chekhov. His works are still an essential part of curriculum in schools and liberal arts colleges around the world. We find his busts from the Soviet era occasionally, but his full standing statuettes are very uncommon.

    This piece can be a meaningful decorative highlight for a library or classroom!
